(... not that I don't enjoy my shared-dreams-JS fics, mind you... ^^; )

Tch. Erik has such a pimp bedroom. =D

Another case of the Traitorous Shipper/Big Sappy Romantic Roommate syndrome. And no, we've certainly not heard the last of those prom night pictures... Tee Hee.

(And, for Someone who thought I might be spending --too much!-- time on : look, a Running Gag! ;) )


This is a work of fanart and solely intended for shits and giggles. Not mine, not making money from it.

Sarah and Jareth (c) Lucas, Froud, Henson; Connelly and Bowie
Christine and Erik (c) Leroux and Webber.

Based on the original Roommates comic by ~AsheRhyder

The way I see it, Sarah and Erik are already close friends at this point. If they weren't, I doubt Sarah would trust him enough to leave him alone with a tranced Christine.
And I love that Erik would keep all three promises. Those two really are partners-in-crime.
Dammit. Now I want a story arc where Sarah and Erik plan a robbery/heist together.

I love Sarah's raised eyebrows in Panels 8 and 10. Sarah treats the homicidal opera ghost with a lot more respect than she treats the Goblin King. This ES not-bromance is my favourite relationship of the GND series.

The tentative alliance between Sarah and Erik gives me life. I hope they become friends later on.

Remember those words carefully, Sarah. They will come back to haunt you someday.

I discovered the Phantom when I was 12 and I couldn't help but fall in love with the book and Erik. Growing up, I loved the goblin king, but when the movie come out I questioned who I liked better.....Erik or Jareth.....I didn't know until I saw the Phantom on stage. This whole midnight-music-seduction thing for Erik I would not mind one bit. I should be a ashamed but I'm not......

Erik is very creepy-chic. 
She might regret that later.

I will admit, it is a pimpin' bedroom.

I love the Erick/Sarah alliance. Erick looks really hot when he tells her not to wake a sleepwalker.

this page is so much funny now that 'it' actually happened !!

Oh, with the coat just draped around him.

Lol Erik!
Goddessa39 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2013
lol. so awesome. there are so much lovelies to this though. do you have a more 'next' button or maybe belong to some comic site that groups them all together?
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2013  Professional General Artist
If you access them via the GirlsNextDoor folder in my gallery, the deviantart Previous and Next buttons will work. I really do need to make some links tho.
AniskyM Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2013
Hey, so I've thought many times how this needed to be archived in a more user-friendly format, and I'm trying to develop my computery skills in my free time...

Could I create a GND website with a more webcomic-y format, by any chance?
Bonzet Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2013
I think Erick likes a girl with spunk. If Sarah had any musical leanings he'd probably make a pass at her.
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner May 15, 2013  Professional General Artist
Oh, there's a goodly sprinkling of weird Eric/Sarah hints as you go on...
TheDiva1977 Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013
Yeah, I know loving Erik in evil-hypnotic-seduction mode is wrong....but Lord help me, I don't want to be right. *sigh*
Ayumi-Fallassion Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2013  Student Artisan Crafter
But, where's the kitty? In Phantom he had a Siamese, which personally, fits him to a T.
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013  Professional General Artist
I didn't bring much Kay-verse into this...

It's ok, I was just being silly
AnaxErik4ever Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013  Student Writer
He does, Erik and his bedroom I mean. Stage, screen, book, whatever; his boudoir pwns most others. Not sure if I'm a fan of the coffin in the book though; it's a little melodramatic, even for me. I wouldn't mind if he lured me there with his music either.

The entire last row on the page is just utterly epic! :rofl: :rofl:
PastMisfortunes Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ahahaha, I love that last panel.
Lunarluminesce Featured By Owner May 17, 2012
Oh my...Erik's face on the seventh panel...And the second-to-last for that matter. I suppose when placed right beside the tricky Goblin King I began to forget his own villainous qualities. Which is strange, considering that in canon, he's the one who committed all those murders (while Jareth threatened goblins with a terrible bog of stench). As strange as it sounds, I like this side of Erik from time to's refreshing. (Considering playing music is all he's planning to do, that is.)

I have to admit, I'd give Sarah a bad roommate award in this instance. Though I suppose nothing really bad is going to happen to Christine.
Godmusic Featured By Owner May 1, 2012  Student Writer
jajaja Good cath erik, and I like soo much the second and third condition of sarah xD i really like the picture!! the room of erik is really great!!

All I can say is that this is funny and I LMFAO'd for a long time

Magus-Anarchy-13713 Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2011
He...he hypnotised a woman he professes to love into coming to his bedroom late at night? That's...that's really, really creepy. I mean, the Phantom was never exactly safe, but I never thought he'd do something like that....please, please, please tell me it isn't what it looks like.
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2011  Professional General Artist
*raises hands innocently* Hey, it's all but canon behaviour for Erik.

Although if it's any comfort, he is far too much of a gentleman to do anything other than play beeyoutiful music and sing his sad love to her and she just wakes up with a headful of bittersweet dream-memories.
Granted, by 1900s' standards that makes Chris a ruined woman - but the PotO's cast has updated their mentalities a tad by the time of this comic.

And the Dude, Not Cool aspect of the issue IS addressed much later in-comic.
Magus-Anarchy-13713 Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2011
Sorry, it's just...Erik's a gentleman. Also, I have issues. (And now I want an 'apologetic' emoticon)
dreamseer7 Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2011
I'm stalking your comic from time to time. Gives me great joy. <3
Also, it rather bugs me that I'm in love with the way you draw the Phantoms face... in a good way, though. :D

I feel happy not being the only one that likes to continue movies in a funny way *3*

A bucket of cold water- epp! I'd of said steer me back to my room!

That third is going to come into play. I can tell.
CobaltSapphire Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2011
Hmm... I do wonder what is so intriguing about these photographs. Actually I change my mind. It's better if I don't know.
Oh God! Horrific images! EEEEK!
faeriewhimsy Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2011
I very much like this strip and also the one over here with Elizabeth Swan

It would mean so much to me if I could write a couple of ficlets based on them. Would you mind very much?
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2011  Professional General Artist
I'd love to read 'em. :)
faeriewhimsy Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2011
That's so great to hear! One of them is up, and here.

More to come soon :)

Wait, you're a TROPER!!! Huzzah! Yay for running gags!!! (especially if it ends with a crowning moment of funny!)

An organ in an appartment. THAT must be nice.
tisk-task Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2010
You know the last box made me realize that both Erick and Jareth have a good couple of years on thier respective counterparts. But they never have mature moments. ..........
